Forex Flash: Antipodes should slip further today; outlook ‘firmer in Q1’ - Westpac (San Francisco) - From Sean Callow of the Westpac Global Strategy Group in Sydney: “The local calendars offer little inspiration. NZD and AUD seem a little vulnerable to further deterioration in US fiscal negotiations, where the House vote seems set to generate a fresh set of angry partisan headlines. NZD/USD should slip towards 0.8300/10 on the day, AUD/USD to 1.0450/60. The outlook for both pairs is firmer in Q1 however, assuming a reasonable fiscal deal is eventually reached.”
